Bright Like Neon

With summer transforming into fall, I find myself gravitating towards one last infusion of bright colors through neons and metals. Pentagono Estudio from Mexico created the Nodo - a dynamic piece of furniture that reinterprets a classical form. If the neon shade of yellow is too overwhelming for your space (or taste) is also comes in a more subdued red shade and black.  If neon furniture is too much of a commitment for you, the AVF Acrylic Fearless Trays are a must. They are trays- so you can use them in your home in a variety of ways. Even if you just want to add color to your space. However, the AVF Brilliant Acrylic Console Table in red is the perfect infusion of bright color. Its simple form blends into almost any space. Moving from neon to medal...The LUXX mirrors by Samuel Accoceberry are decorative steel mirrors in tinted gold, bronze, and dark grey. They are arranged parallelograms, hexagons, and diamond, resulting in asymmetrical or symmetrical shapes.  The Copper Shade Floor lamp by Tom Dixon is a must. Copper is not neon, but this metal lamp sure infuses its surrounding space with a beautiful glow. 

Things for Your Wall

One of my favorite ways to introduce color, light, warmth, and laughs  into a room is through the walls. I like bold and bright geometric patterns,  dreamy looking wall coverings that remind me of hand-made Italian paper,  framed art and sculpture, and even a little neon to accessorize walls. Now, not all of these elements should go into the same room, otherwise that would over load the senses. However, using one or coupling some of these elements makes for interesting walls and beautiful rooms.
